“When we signed up to Love Home Swap we weren't expecting to get a 5 Star Resort experience living up in the trees right on the Beach. Sounds too good to be true right? But Shambhala gave us just that. We not only had great sights but sounds and wonderful smells. A feast for all our senses. As soon as we walked through the large wooden entrance doors we instantly felt calm. Arriving at night felt magical with low lighting in all the right places dotted amongst the statues and giant crystals. We were greeted with the sweetest resort Manager who gave us the grand tour. Our first night was in Shiva studio which was perfect for a cinema experience which doubled up as a great place to do Yoga in the morning. Dawn arrived and the whole place was shown in all it's glorious light. It got even better for the rest of our stay after we moved to Samedhi. This secluded accommodation was high up with great sea views that could be enjoyed from the bath on the bedroom balcony. A Hot Tub and a bottle of fizz in the fridge made our stay truly memorable. We had what felt like a hotel experience with our own robes, toiletries and even our towels in the shape of swans! We loved The Treehouse for dinner and The Farm for breakfast and Lunch. Vita Yoga in a tent with bush turkey's wandering around was also something we would recommend. Joanna, Thank you for the gifts you left us at the end of our trip and thank you for letting us experience the great place that you've created. ”

About our home
Shambhala means hidden paradise and as such this rainforest oasis right on the Beachfront is aptly named.
Hidden away along a private road in Byron Bay’s exclusive Belongil Beach enclave, this spectacular property affords total privacy when required, yet is only minutes walk along the beach to the heart of Byron Bay. Ocean to the East with the river to the West, it is truly natures playground.
Elevated within the rainforest canopy are three separate awe inspiring tree houses, each complete luxury assured, in total privacy from each other and the outside world, together with majestic views and the joys of nature abounding.
The romantic beach retreat is Samadhi meaning ‘bliss’. Shanti is a bigger home still with ocean views meaning ‘Peace’ and Sarita meaning ‘free flowing’ on the river side is the biggest of the three cottages.
Waking to the sweet orchestra of bird life you will be energised by ocean waves and inspired as you walk along the green emerald, pebbled lanes along your private access to the sand below where dolphins and humpback whales dive and play.
After a morning swim you may care to laze away on the hammock or perhaps snuggle up on one of the day beds to listen to the waterfalls and calm your senses or relax in your private outdoor jet stream Jacuzzi or sauna.
For dinner have a gourmet al fresco dining on either of the magnificent sun decks offering stunning uninterrupted views of Julian rocks and the world famous lighthouse. Perhaps you might prefer a moonlight Bali bath under a starry sky? Shambhala is the place of dreams and imagination, a fairy land at night with amazing water features and wonderful colours to open your heart and let your soul sing.
Absorb the healing energy of the giant rose quartz boulders, in this high energy field, be inspired by the truly unique giant Brazilian Amethyst Entrance Piece.
If its fitness or contemplation you crave, practice yoga or meditate in the Forest Yoga Studio in the center of the Gardens. Or if you prefer use the fully equipped Gym while still in contact with esoteric sounds of the ocean.
For those keen on brushing up their skills Bikram (Hot) or traditional yoga is just a short stroll up the road. For those who prefer to substitute coffee for yoga the cafes are even closer.
Shambhala is known as Byron’s retreat for the stars - however you don’t have to be famous to come escape and set your spirit free!
